Please tell me where to send a DS45 depth sounder for repair. I am sure that the problem is not the transducer.

SOURCE: Depth sounder

the transducer has to be in the water or attached to the inside of the hull if fiberglass with no air between the hull and the transducer. It doesn't transmit thru air.

SOURCE: loses the depth after around 60 feet.

Is the transducer face clean? Fouling and barnacles can cause poor depth readings. Also, a low power output from transmitter or poor sensitivity of the receiver (both internal), or a broken transducer cable connection (usually accompanied by heavy noise being painted on screen). With your ear in the water, fairly close to transducer (6-10 ft., you should hear a clear tick-tick-tick sound as it transmits on a medium depth range.. No power adjustment is available in the menus, but the unit does transmit at a slower rate, with wider (stronger) pulses on the deeper ranges.

SOURCE: furuno 4100 depth sounder shows depth twice what it really is

check your gain setting try auto gain and try manually gaining back to see if it resolves, if yes, send unit in to furuno, if no, ducer is probably at fault.

If the transducer is out of the water, you will not get a reading and see the flashing depth. You should hear and feel the clicking in the transducer when out of the water and working properly. Are you getting a temp reading when out of the water?

I was told that the Uniden QT-206HP depth sounder will not work thru an alunium hull is this true or false


Hi!

The transducer for your depth gauge will not work through an aluminum hull. A drilled through-hull transducer or a transom mount transducer are your options here.

Just in case you require it, your Owners Manual can be viewed/downloaded at:

Hope this helps..

My Garmin 498C will not show the contore of the bottom or give me a depth reading. The GPS works and will show me charts but, not the sounder option though.


You need to check to see if the depth sounder transducer is connected or functioning. It might be turned off, the connectors may be bad or the transducer is bad. I don't have the 498 manual in front of me but I think there is a test function under the setup menu. I'd check my connections (the usual suspect) then run that.

Garmin tech support is pretty good/quick. So don;t be afraid to give them a call.

Hello geld1. Your problem is the transducer, cable or connector. Check transducer with an ohm meter, flex the cable while ohming the restance shouldn't change. The location and mounting of the transducer could be the main problem. Use the the correct gel film including a secure postion support.

Depth Sounder does not display depth


I will see if I can get mine off the hull for testing. Still have found no procedure. Thinking about just replacing the sounder with another unit.

Log and trip function not registering


It is unlikely the problem is in the A65 screen.....most likely it is an issue with the paddlewheel itself, its circuit in the depth/speed transducer, or least likely, in the DSM25 sounder module.

Both the log and the trip functiions are read from the paddle-wheel sensor of the connected DSM25 sounder module and transducer.

1. Make sure you have a DSM25 sounder module and transducer with a paddle wheel (the A65 is available without the DSM25 option.)

Double check the connections between the DSM25 and the A65, as well as the transducer connection to the A65. There is an indicator light on the DSM25 to confirm it is on.

2. Make sure the paddle wheel turns freely. They tend to get fouled easily with debris and growth.

3. Make sure the A65 is giving to a reading for SPEED when underway or when having a buddy spin the paddlewheel by hand. Do not confuse SPEED with SOG. SPEED is from the paddlewheel.....SOG (Speed over ground) comes from your GPS sensor and is not used by A65 for log or trip purposes.

If you get npo speed reading at all the paddle wheel may be defective or the depth/speed transducer may be defective. See your dealer about a replacement.

Depth: Could be for a number of reasons, too deep for the sounder - check the manual for it's max depth. Dirty water, sounder unable to penetrate through to the bottom. Weed or other debris covering the transducer. Transducer on a swing mount & being pushed out of alignment then dropping back in once stopped.

Speed: Is the speed readout controlled by a GPS or paddlewheel? If it's GPS, check the power connection of the sounder, may be loose which would also cause the depth to 'drop out'. If it's paddlewheel, you're down to bad connections or faulty unit.
